My 2014 began with high hopes.
As usual, I wrote down my cliche resolutions.
Eat healthier, get organized, be more awesome, etc.
I started out on fire! But then, as usual, life happened.
Statistics show that only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s resolutions.
I was not among them.
That is why I have decided to do something different for 2015.
There will be no resolutions. No list. No “This year will be different” mumbojumbo.
Just yesterday my wife reminded me that she had asked me to order her a vacuum for the car months ago.
I have turned the five minute task of ordering a vacuum into months because I felt the need research every comparable model.
While I had good intentions, Beth still doesn’t have a vacuum for the car.
(I stopped writing and ordered her one on Amazon just now!)
My point is that we overcomplicate things.
For 2015, I will be keeping things simple. I have boiled down my goals for the year into just two words.
Instead of trying to keep track of a list that I will forget, I will focus on taking control of the areas where I struggle.
I don’t want to be someone that looks back on life and sees what could have been.
I want to make life happen, not have life happen to me!
Now is the time to take control (or order your wife a vacuum)!
For far to long I haven’t had control over my health, my mind, or my walk with God.
2015 is the year that I intend to TAKE CONTROL.
This blog, for the time being, will be devoted to charting my progress towards taking back control of life.
Hopefully what I learn along the way will help or encourage you to do the same.
How about you? Do you do resolutions? Could they be simplified to just two words?
